president obama needs to go right now. it reminds me of the stated reason that george w. bush didn't land in new orleans right after hurricane katrina. he didn't want to get in the way of some of the cleanup. of course that disaster response didn't go as well as it looks like president obama is handling the response happening this time. but there is the danger dealing with secret service logistics at a time when regular logistics, just living every day life, becomes incredibly hard. >> i think it's worth pointing out certainly the obama campaign probably didn't imagine the extent. warmth of the words that chris christie has for the president, but mitt romney held his disaster relief event in ohio yesterday. the question that dogged him that he would not answer was about fema. take a listen. >> governor, what should fema's role be? governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> well, it's either 11 or 14 times, depending on whose count you believe. the campaign released a statement saying that romney would not abolish fema but, quote, governor romney believes that states shou
to minnesota which had been a safe obama state, recently moved to a lean obama state. so they're having to shore up in minnesota and pennsylvania. where romney has put additional resources in, because last week he said bob, watch where the money goes. that's where the money is going from both campaigns, does it mean they're more up for grabs? >> bob: romney spread out the electoral map no question about it. if obama were to lose minnesota, it would be a landslide for romney. they have to send him in to shore things up. he will get to colorado where he needs to be. what romney, though, is missing here is a lot of campaign events in ohio, which he desperately needs. >> dana: that's where he was today. >> bob: but he was doing fundraising there. which is fine. but he needs to do the rallies and other things. anytime you freeze something, it doesn't actually mean you come back to where it was when you froze it. >> eric: no, but it doesn't mean the momentum changes back. face it, president obama has had the best success at changing the polling. when he goes negative. when his negative ads ab
of the president obama has just a one-point lead among likely voters. three new swing state polls show the president still in the lead, although with a margin that is shrinking in florida, virginia and ohio. and instead of campaigning, the president went to the red cross in washington, d.c., yesterday. >> this is a tough time for a lot of people. millions of folks all across the eastern seaboard. but america is tougher. and we're tougher because we pull together, we leave nobody behind, we make sure that we respond as a nation and remind ourselves that whenever an american is in need, all of us stand together to make sure that we're providing the help that's necessary. >> mitt romney will resume a full campaign schedule today, stumping in florida. he held a disaster relief event yesterday in ohio. >> we've got people right now that are having some hard times because of this terrible hurricane and the storm that followed it, and your generosity will make a difference. so i want to thank you. >> i want to bring in usa today's washington bureau chief susan page. maureen dowd writes this t
poll has romney ahead 50 to 48 in a buckeye state virtual tie yet there obama leads by two points in the real clear politics average of the recent ohio polls. romney went ahead with afternoon rally in iowa, but that is it for at least a day as the campaign takes a backseat to the storm. romney closing argument for final stretch is dubbed day one, job one, referring to the economy. he promises tax relief. north american energy independence. to repeal obamacare, block military cuts and balance the budget among other things. all of that is on hold. romney tonight will spend overnight in dayton, ohio, returning there without planned or scheduled campaign events tomorrow. it will likely be relief oriented but not clear it will take place in iowa. if the storm passed enough and opportunity to take part in recovery and clean-up action. possible mr. romney would head for the seacoast. at this point, all carefully choreographed final stage craft in final day of the campaign have been dashed. 200 hours less, really, before the election. exactly a week from tomorrow. the romney campaign does
on monday due to hurricane. president obama declared a state of emergency for the commonwealth of massachusetts as a result of hurricane sandy. u.s. federal offices in d.c. closed. philadelphia, the southeast pennsylvania transit authority, septa as its called, will suspend all services at the end of the sunday service. listening, they're not playing around, if you're in any of these areas, you need to listen to what your officials are telling us. george howell is in kill devil hills, north carolina. george, you have been out there all day. tell me how the weather has intensified. >> reporter: don, i can tell you right now we are actually getting a break in the wind. the winds are dying down a bit, but they are also shifting. we can tell that's happening, and that strong rain is backing off, but this storm continues to move to the north and it is changing hour by hour. here within the last few hours we've been in touch with emergency management officials here in dare county just to find out what they're dealing with. they're dealing with the flooding that's happening throughout
in the northeast. which is obama country. we expect obama to carry every state in the northeast with the exception of new hampshire. pennsylvania, believe me, pennsylvania is in play obama campaign was counting on a lot of those negative ads. people aren't going to be paying attention to them because that storm is ripping right through that state right right now. >> absolutely. >> three days of ads in pennsylvania. all of that the psychology, the money at the federal level that's going to have to be used to restore the northeast, we're talking billions and billions of dollars. it just heightens the fact we don't have enough money to upgrade our electrical grid in this country we're 40 years behind where we should be there. this smentd going to effect the election but it does make you think that 800 billion-dollar stimulus which sprinkle hurled out of airplanes and helicopters and left not a trace ended up in solyndra and other places. imagine if we had single project like highway hour picking the interstate highway system and it had been the electrical grid or burying every wire in the country und
, swing states and ohio, romney colorado. give obama ohio and new hampshire. i think the point i want to make about this map is a broader one and it's a criticism and an expression of bafflement about the romney campaign strategy. if you look at that map, to win to get to 270, they have to win virginia, florida, north carolina. got to win colorado. putting that together, pick off ohio or some combination of wisconsin and plus new hampshire, iowa, nevada. a combination there and the polls out of ohio and wisconsin, not looking good for romney. to me the issue is this. there are states on the map that could have been competitive. oregon, michigan, minnesota, pennsylvania and even maybe where obama had big margins in 2008 like 15, 16-point margins but you have to go back to 2004 to see, you know, a three-point race in minnesota. a three-point race in michigan. these are states, there's a lot of flexibility in these states. if romney with all the money he had and republicans had, outside money, if they had targeted the states early with advertising and then with field work, too, i think i
continues on the stump while president obama campaigns in three states today. >>> also keeping an eye on recovering from sandy. >>> plus, tea party favorite and former presidential candidate michele bachmann is fighting for her political life. those details next. you're watching "early today." >> announcer: brought to you by the makers of centrum men and women. have you taken the most complete multi-vitamitoday? >>> well, the campaign clock is ticking down, and with just about 120 hours to go until election day, the polls show the candidates are still neck in neck. nbc's tracie pots has all the details for us from washington. tracie, good morning. >> reporter: lynn, good morning. the latest poll of the battleground states show a slight advantage for president obama, ahead by 6 in iowa, three in wisconsin, and just two, well within the margin of error in new hampshire. but this week he's really been focused on new jersey, touring the storm damage there with governor chris christie, a republican rival who has said repeatedly the president's done a great job responding to the storm. anal
, 137-39. this continues throughout the states. you see ohio, florida, colorado. obama's lead is massive. obama built the largest grassroots organization that politics saw in '08 and after he won he continued to build it. this can make a difference of two points and in a close race like this it can make all the difference in '08. it gave obama some already. that's not the situation in this case. people that have been to the ground offices say the obama offices are all about obamament the romney offices are rnc offices and not always all about romney. that leads a conservative like joe scarborough to worry about what's happening that the obama offices are building this unparalleled turnout machine and the great irony that scarborough writes for the romney camp is their candidate drirch by data and numbers his entire life is relying on the most unpredi unpredictable force of all, human emotion, to pull him over the top. i don't understand why romney and the gop have allowed this to happen? >> if it were just about having offices, obama would be in a clear lead in states like florida he's n
to a certain degree, but virginia is the big state, with 13 electoral votes. what the nightmares, for obama, in particular, northern virginia is going to be hit very hard. in 2008 northern vi which is the moratic party of the state provided obama's entire victory margin in the state. it took the whole downstate sely and a tie between obama and jo mccain, northern virginia did it. so, there is concern, obviously, among s, that northern virginia might see their polling places knocked out, early absentee balloting--. >>neil: but what do they do? a lotf voting machines are hooked up to outlets, right? they need power, so, you cannot vote, is it conceivable, and it sounds incredible to me that they would extend voting or make a new voting day and push it furthe back? we e in unchartered territory. later later --t would take a court order. we have a provision for paper ballots if the electricity is off, the polling distribute paper balld e lots of problems connected to paper ballots but at least that can be done if nothinge and we hope it doesn't get do that point. >>neil: we will watc very y. t
to be in places like michigan, minnesota and pennsylvania, states that david axelrod, the obama campaign strategist, just was on a conference call with reporters saying he bets his mustache that romney won't win any of those three states. so you look at the romney campaign spending resources in places like wisconsin, sending paul ryan to wisconsin to me does not project a campaign that thinks it's winning. they should put everything they have got into ohio. yesterday there was that quasicampaign/relief effort. they got a little burned for it because it was seen for what it was, a campaign event, but that's where they need to double down. because barack obama if he wins ohio, he could lose virginia and florida and still win. >> they have been doubling down. they spent all of this time in ohio and because of sandy spent more time in ohio. but if we look at early voting polling that is coming out of ohio and then florida, the president leads. is it the obama ground game that's really pushing them ahead? >> it's the obama ground game. ironically it's also the republican party. when i was in
game was my name. >> reporter: president obama also visits seven states between now and election day with a focus on ohio. his must-win state. he'll be there every day between now and the election making his closing argument high lighting higher home prices and overseas. >> al qaeda has been decimated. osama bin laden is dead. so we've made real progress these past four years. >> reporter: how will it shake out on tuesday? >> i think romney has a 50/50 chance to win the popular vote. >> reporter: a possible split verdict from a nation already deeply divided. anxious to end this very long campaign. tracie potts, nbc news, washington. >> thank you. scott mcgrew has the latest on the numbers. >> the obama administration will seek to the gains and the romney will look at the unemployment. 171,000 added in the month of october. higher than expected. the other is the household survey. called that because it is arr e arrived at a set of phone calls stating, "are you working?" that is up from 7.8% in september. where the romney campaign will have traction is not that change month to month.
are not true. >> president obama also visits the seven states between now and election day with a focus on ohio, is must-win state. he will be there every day between now and the election. >> al qaeda as been decimated, osama bin laden is dead. we have made real progress these past four years. >> how will it shakeout on tuesday? >> romney has a 50-50 chance to win the popular vote. it is harder to see him winning the electorial vote. >> a possible split verdict from a nation deeply divided, and anxious to end this very long campaign. >> baltimore city police are investigating a shooting involving a licensed security guard. officers found a man suffering a gunshot wounds at the 500 block of west franklin st. phone 8 econo 25 last night. a preliminary investigation reveals that the victim had been trying to dig into a car when a security guard approached him. a physical confrontation ensued and it ended with the victim being shot with the security guard was not injured. a funeral arrangements are underway now for a u.s. navy seal killed in baltimore. alonso gladden was home on his first day of le
polls in three states that were traditionally democrats leaning obama, and president obama won in 2008: pennsylvania, minnesota, and michigan. michigan, of course, is romney's native state and polls suggest obama has the lead but mitt romney has closed the gap to the margin of error. obama campaigns scoffs at this and senior obama advisor axelrod said if they lost any of those he would shave off his mustache of 40 years but mitt romney has considered headed there a sign they think the plafield is expanding beyond the seven states that have been hotly contested and present the romney campaign opportunity to put obama on defense and have the offense ease the path to 270. very, very close, six days left, polls suggest everything is tight and no way to know who has the edge. so, no time for napping, either. >>shepard: i was hoping you got a nap while everyone else was working. >>carl: not a chance. romney is staying busy. >>shepard: thank you, carl cameron. massive gridlock around new york city, 4.3 million people use the subways and there is no subway. commuters returned to work and many

to be hunkering down in ohio a state he needs to be better in. president obama is going to be stuck at the white house. and he went to florida tonight so he could be in place for a rally tomorrow. he may regret going there at all because he'll be coming back to the white house to monitor the storm, but it's going to be halting a lot of political activity going forward into wednesday. maybe even thursday, but right now the white house is looking at canceling even more events, potentially another event that the president was going to be having in wisconsin on tuesday night. so, it looks like we're coming to a stand still for a couple of days here. >> geraldo: so, you have both governor romney and president obama trying to balance the fact that the election is eight, nine days away, with the, first of all, the perception that they have to be paying attention, they have to be-- the president literally has to be there in command as commander-in-chief, it's a very, very difficult balancing act for them and it comes at a time. i have the polls in front of me, erin, i'd like to run over with you. first
's campaign is running out of steam. meantime, president obama also hitting seven states between now and election day with the focus on ohio. he will be in ohio every day until voters head to the polls. the president making his closing argument and focusing on that must-win state. and he is also picking up a key endorsement from new york mayor michael bloomberg. earlier in the week the mayor said they were too busy with storm cleanup to accommodate a presidential visit, but he did write in "bloomberg news" that he's endorsing the president because of his policies on climate change. lynn. >>> all right. >>> well, some more political news for you. missouri senate candidate todd akin gained national attention for those legitimate rape comments. well, now he's out with a new campaign ad featuring two women talking about, of all things, rape and abortion. take a look. >> my name is kelly burrill and i'm a full-time student, i'm a single mother. i'm a woman who's had an abortion. i've been raped in my past. the reason that i'm voting for todd and that i'm so proud of him is because he defe

obama and new jersey governor chris christie are going to tour parts of the state of new jersey tomorrow. atlantic city is obviously on the president's schedule. lorenzo langford is the mayor of atlantic city. he joins us now by phone. mayor langford, your city was truly slammed by this superstorm. the boardwalk smashed, areas flooded. fudge, give's a status update. >> well, i think we're coming out of this thing in pretty good shape, believe it or not. our biggest concern at this point is trying to restore power to 1/3 of our residents. once we're able to do that, i'm hopeful state police will open up the roads into atlantic city to allow for passage of our residents who have been moved into higher ground in shelters outside the city tone able them to come back in and return to their humble abodes. that's our biggest concern right now. >> were there any casualties? >> we had one casualty. we haven't determined as of yet whether or not it was an atlantic city resident. but one of the shelters where some of our residents had been moved to did realize a fatality, i should say. and that's t
: christie wasn't the only gop governor in sandy's path to hear from obama. swing state governors of virginia and pennsylvania were also on a presidential call on tuesday. >> and dana joins me now. and as you said, dana, in your piece, the president will be with governor christie tomorrow in new jersey. obviously, we'll be covering that closely. there is some politicking going on kind of underneath the radar, isn't there? >> there is, of course, no surprise. in this case it's democrats that are really pushing a story that romney would slash federal disaster relief, even get rid of fema, and they're basing that primarily on a cnn debate last year during the republican primaries when romney said that the federal role should be limited during a disaster. he said that states, even the private sector should have more power. now, romney was asked multiple times today in ohio to clarify that position on fema, but he didn't answer. afterwards, romney's campaign insisted that he would not eliminate fema. that may be true, anderson, but romney's plan overall to reduce the deficit would mean cutting spe
hurt president obama by depressing the early vote in battle ground states. the battleground states, nam, and virginia, don't worry about early person voting, not really a determine for the obama campaign. the storm could affect early voter turnout. but the states hardest hit are blue states, new jersey, new york, and connecticut. they are still likely to go for president obama. cnn, jessica yellin, the white house. >> here with the hoboken mayor, dawn zimmer what a day a day makes. the national guard hadn't arrived. and this is what she said about it last night. >> we are desperate for the national guard to come in we need their specialized equipment to get through city streets to safely get the people and evacuate those out of the national guard. >> you have been asking? >> i have been asking. chain of command. >> what are you hearing? >> they are coming, they are coming, they are coming, but they are not here. >> that was last night, we heard that around 8:00, shortly after, you got word they were coming and they arrived about 1:00 a.m. how are things now? >> we appreciate governor ch
this even as competitive as your state has become, if barack obama, ends up winning the state, it might be no small measure to what you have been doing? >> it could be, i think frankly the election will hinge on whether the people accept the last 4 yeers under president obama or think that i do we need to go in a different direction, we started our different direct here two years ago, not taxing our people more, spending within our means, not beyond. other republican governors that were elected in 2010 with me have been doing the same thing across the country. neil: that would be a kick, though, right, if turns out where, president maiden roads, -- inroads, a lot of swing states, many but not all, all republican governors. it is more than coincidental, is it not? >> i think it is, it is the vast majority of republican governors that have been able to turn this, in those areas the economy is growing, we would like to see it to know to grow, we could we need a leadership change at the top. neil: you think, that governor romney is wasting his time, as much as you love your state, he love o
their message in the wake of the storm but that could change today with five days left president obama goes back on the campaign trail with events in wisconsin, nevada and colorado. governor romney arrives in virginia a day after an event in another battleground state. >> mitt romney campaigned in florida wednesday but during his three rallies he never once mentioned president obama by name. >> i understand what it takes to get this country going again. and to bring back the kind of greatness we depend on. >> he refrained from an all out attack on the president who was visiting with disaster victims in new jersey. instead romney made his own pitch to help those affected by the storm. >> if you have the ability to help please provide some resources to people there and give calls to your loved ones and keep folks in your thoughts and prayers. it's a big part of what america is. >> the romney campaign ended up back pedalling wednesday over remarks he made about disaster relief funding. at a republican primary debate last year romney down played the federal government's role in disaster response. >>
news for the obama campaign. they are defending seats. all these battleground states that we are talking about, you know, he won pennsylvania by 681,000 votes, 10% points. he should be trying, the president, expanding rather than defending but all they care about is winning at least by one vote to get all the electoral votes in that state. >> in 2000, i was in florida in west palm beach watching as they counted hanging chads. won't be quite as bad this time in ohio but ohio is a mess. >> ohio, i just don't see how you and i are going to be able and the rest of fox 5 to talk about a result. the reason why is because the secretary of state has sid said for the very first time absentee ballot possibilities to all 7 million voters and the people that requested them and then decide not to actually send in an absentee ballot will have to cast a provisional ballot on election day and those ballots which will be hundreds of thousands of them, will not be counted until ten days after the election. so i don't think we're going to be able to determine which way ohio went after all this
know what is going to be the result. maryland, only four states did better for obama than maryland. it's lock. virginia might be pivotal and maybe with the benefit of hindsight, we could have said, if romney had spent more time in virginia, although they've both spent so much time here, by canceling one event in virginia beach, i don't think it is going to make a difference. >> all right. fox 5 political analyst mark plotkin, thank you and stay safe. >> thank you. >> all right. that is just -- that just shows you how strong the storm is expected to be if we are talking about next week. this is not by any means a stretch of the imagination. >> yeah, the real key here. this is uncharted territory. we really haven't ever seen a storm like this sort of make that left hook this late in the season. the wind field is so expansive, all the way from maine to the carolinas, they are getting tropical force wind. it is very powerful. don't be fooled. it doesn't mean it is not still on the way. it will get steadily worse during the course of the day. the wind will be gusting 55, 65, maybe even 70
he will tour his state with president obama, a president he has praised for his administration's storm response. this is what he had to say to piers morgan. >> this is so much bigger than an election. this is the livelihood of the people of my state. what they expect me to do is get the job done. when someone asks me an honest question, i give an honest answer. how has the president been to deal with? he has been outstanding to deal with on this. i look forward to seeing him tomorrow. >> this is the same man who questioned the president's leadership at the republican national convention. >> we need politicians to care more about doing something and less about being something. it is time to end this era of absentee leadership in the oval office and send real leaders back to the white house. america needs mitt romney and paul ryan! and we need them right now. >> political analysts are confused. romney surrogate, fox and friends, tried to get christie to dial it back. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i ha
the storm damage with chris christie president obama hits the campaign trail traveling to three states and mitt romney starts a rally in virginia. a company tied to the massachusetts pharmacy linked to the meningitis outbreak has announce ad major recall. ameridoes is recalling its products from pain killers. steroids have been connected to the meningitis outbreak that killed 29 people. >>> smugglers from mexico tried an unusual approach to getting the goods over the border. they tried to drive their jeep cherokee over the top of the 14-foot fence in southeast california using a makeshift ramp. agents on patrol came across the jeep just as it got stuck. two people trying to free it fled back into mexico when agents got there. they tried. >>> the streets of san francisco were awash in orange and black not for halloween but to salute the baseball giants. there was a parade wednesday. fans carried brooms. guess why, by the way? to represent san francisco's four game sweep of the tigers. i didn't immediately think that. that just me? i was thinking witches and halloween. cool. good to see.
, governor chris christie and other officials assessed the damage. mr.obama has assured the state of the government's continued support. >> what i can promise you is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials and we will not quit until this is done. >> reporter: the state has several coastal areas that fuel new jersey's $35 billion tourism industry. storm surge has left board walks in ruins. the wide spread damage striking a crippling blow to the state's economy. >> everything is destroyed. all of the pier, nothing is left of it. all the rides are torn down. >> reporter: governor christie says the damage is minor compared to the things that are irreplaceable. >> if you look to your wife, your left, your husband or wife, your son or daughter, those are things that can't be replaced. >> reporter: some places remain especially critical rite now including hoboken, new jersey which is just across the hudson river from manhattan. thousands remain stranded there because of flood waters. the mayor says that city needs more supplie
and forth between ohio and wisconsin, which are the two most important states. if president obama can hold on to nevada, wisconsin and ohio, he still wins with 271 electoral votes. so with mitt romney out on the trail, that is in part a disadvantage for president obama, but it's too hard to say right now. >> hogan, governor romney is continuing that cam taken to go forward in states not impacted by hurricane sandy. it was really interesting, joe scarborough and his observations this morning he made on "morning joe." take a listen. >> this was mitt romney's best weekend, and it stops. the momentum stops. you don't know how it freezes, but it's a new dynamic into the race and changes everything with with a week to go. >> let's talk about this. not only could this stall romney's momentum, but it also brings up something that mitt romney was forceful about during the primary debates. he sad voe indicated shutting down team na and letting states handle disaster relief. watching what's taking place with sandy, know we have 12 different states that declared states of emergency and also the distri
